United Services - Free promotional offers!Just this morning (09/13/07), barely an hour ago, I was contacted by a man claiming to be from "United Services." He had a strong Indian accent and he said his name was "Gary Johnson." Now, that just raised my eyebrows, seeing as he had a pretty thick accent for a very English name. He informed me that I had just been selected to receive a $1,000.00 online shopping spree and a destination vacation for free! Now, I have just moved to this area and the only people who should have my info are my landlord and my phone and internet provider. He kept saying "congratulations," and "wonderful" anytime I answered a question. I never sounded enthusiastic about his call in the first place, which made him very repetitive and he sounded uneasy when I would ask a question. He said I would just have to verify some information. When we got to the checking account number, I told him basically (not in these exact words) that there was no way in hell he was getting my account number over the phone. He kept saying there was no need to worry, that I was only going to be charged $1.95 for shipping of my trial offers. Also that not one penny would be taken out without my verbal authorization and that I would be going through an automated verification system that would give me a conformation number. I asked him a few questions. He gave me his name, his identification number, and a customer service number (866-904-7796) by which to talk to someone to ease my anxiety over giving out my info. He could not tell me how it was he had gotten my information. He only repeated himself about five times that I had been selected to receive these promotional offers and all they needed was my "valuable feedback" of their services, which included long distance telephone, high speed internet, and dietary supplements. He would also say that the call was being recorded for his higher-ups but never offered me a chance to speak to one of them. After about 20 minutes of arguing with him that I was still not going to give out my info, I told him that he should stop talking or I was going to hang up. He hung up on me. I then called the number he had given me and it was an automated system that described their products. This number had no way to talk to anyone in person. I entered their company name in an internet search engine and got a whole bunch of scam alert websites with complaints. So, if Mr. Gary Johnson calls your home, do yourself a favor and hang up right away.
